中半山的黃昏與大廈露台 sunset at mid-levels, golden balconies

2018.06.10 | 羅便臣道威勝大廈 52 robinson road, wise mansion 十層洋樓,卻有唐樓的風流。方正的露台,或稱騎樓、陽台,對今天一般小市民是如何奢侈的空間。 星期天黃昏,斜陽從樓宇間空隙灑落,限量金光,光影無價。 in this old-time and present luxurious residential area, one sunday late afternoon, setting-sun rays swim through hillside and high rises and rest on a few balconies of this low-rise building. what a pretty light and shadow sketch work.

獅子山隧道 lion rock tunnel

2018.05.26 | 獅子山隧道 lion rock tunnel 今天所講的基建項目,總強調對經濟未來的效益,先拋出壯闊畫美的完工後畫面搶眼球,工程開展後卻連連錯漏超資剝削隱瞞,完成後的計畫成效亦不一定如承諾。 昨日從大埔回家,特意不乘鐵路,選坐巴士,經吐露港公路及獅子山隧道出九龍。 坐在巴士上層前座,看著隧道口慢慢接近,忍不住拍照。 感慰昔日前人工程的美與實在,實在指的是工程本身的質料、功效,也指其時計劃的目標和視野。 看那石塊堆集,建材本身的美、石砌的工整和堅實,隧道名字的設計、字體、擺放,與那隧道拱放置的空間美,立體的造字在陽光照射下的光影美。 yesterday i went to tai po. after finishing my work, i decided not to take the faster way, the train, to leave. instead i took a bus. always recommend bus (or tram on the hong kong side) when you are not in a hurry to […]

長沙灣青山道拆樓 demolition, castle peak road (cheung sha wan)

2018.05.14 | 青山道 217-239 castle peak road 昨日到荔枝角辦事,完事後乘巴士往尖沙嘴。經過青山道接東京街的一段,那一排的唐樓群終於搭棚準備拆樓了。這列舊樓從搬遷到丟空有一段日子,終於到倒數日子。 翻查地產網站,當中的樓宇的入伙年份是 1968 年,也就是說樓齡50。 after finishing some business at lai chi kok, i took a bus to tsim sha tsui. the bus travels along castle peak road from lai chi kok to sham shui po. when it went near tonkin street, it is a sad scene, seeing scaffolding […]

【inland lot marker stone 內地段編號標記】IL 757

2018.05.08 |  興漢道 hing hon road 這是我第一次看到路牌上列明地段。是否因為私家街的關係,有待查究。 這條短短的街道,南斜上接般含道,東橫向盡頭是英皇書院操場後門。在這英文字母 L 型反向的角位,有樓梯北下通往薄扶林道。樓梯旁本來是露天今已轉為地下水道,此水就是薄扶林道下北接著水街的名字因由。 對此路很有感情,因為母校小學在般含道上,這裡是上學放學經常經過的路段。 從前這裡地舖是影印鋪,而一街都是典雅的唐樓大宅。可惜,往事如煙。 this is the first time i saw the inland lot highlighted on a road sign. wondering if the reasoning is related to this is a private road or not. hope that i can find out in the future. this is a short road, with […]
